It’s January. There’s snow and ice on the ground. And, it’s cold.

In Colorado, it means the annual National Western Stock Show has begun.
Weather-wise, the stock show is not always besieged by wintry conditions during its two week run in Denver. There have been pleasant days during the stock show, sandwiched in between the colder days. There have been instances when the show has been played out in good weather, by January standards, during the entire run.
This year seems to be no different. A fairly decent Saturday, when the stock show began. And, a decent half-day yesterday, before the arrival of another round of winter. The weather is expected to improve nicely on Wednesday under sunny skies and warming temperatures. Until then, it’ll be a mix of intermittent snow, fog and freezing drizzle.

Another Sad Moment
We say farewell to another feline friend. Our friends, John and Pat in Pennsylvania, said goodbye to their beloved Miss Caitie-Belle. She was their “Calico Diva”.
They were privileged to have Miss Caitie for 17½ years, an extraordinary time of many good memories, of a good cat.
